As it happens, this morning I gave a friend a number of photos from a recent family occasion which he'd asked for (nothing special, just consumer C41 prints from disposable cameras provided for the guests to use)....he was expecting them on disc and was delighted to get a a pile of prints "Wow, real pictures! I'll get a proper book to put them in, must keep them safe!").
